Could some of you share best name brand foundation (I saw concealer info - L'Oreal Feel Naturale and Physician's Formula-Green concealer) -- but could you recommend a good oil-free foundation?
Also - with "mature" skin, I want to start getting away from foundation altogether (seems to make lines more visible), but until then -- what would you suggest?
Thank you all for this wonderful forum to help. Now I don't feel so alone, y'know? Whew...!

Anyhow, what I do after applying BP and moisturizing in the a.m. is dab concealer or foundation only on red marks/blemishes and then dust my face with a light coating of translucent powder. Sometimes for a little extra color to even out my skin tone, I use tinted moisturizer (Cover Girl Smoothers SPF 15 Tinted Moisture). This seems to "hide" the blemishes and minimize the lines better than anything else I've tried...hope this helps.

Any other 40+ make-up ideas out there? I bought some Almay Oil-Free foundation for "the spots" and CornSilk oil-free concealer, too. It feels good only wearing spot cover and not all that foundation and powder.
Thanks for the helpful info...

Another suggestion if you're trying to get away from foundationg altogether, is something called "studiofinish" makeup made by MAC. I've been using it for about a year. It's wonderful. It's kind of a mixture between a foundation and a powder, so it gives the coverage of foundation (but not really heavy coverage), and the absorbency and nice, finish of a powder. I love it b/c it's not really heavy. Looks very natural. I've got acne prone skin, and it hasn't caused me to break out. MAC also does some really good concealers. MAC stuff is a bit more expensive, but worth it, I think. The only bad thing about he studiofinish is if you're skin is dry, it tends to show give that "flaky" look. Good luck!

UPDATE: I'm not really big on the liquid concealer, but I love the foundation! I'm now hooked on Urban Decay's Camoflouge Concealer. It's got green concealer to hide the red spots and flesh-colored concealer all in one pot! Go to urbandecay.com to see it. But I still LOVE the Colorstay foundation because it provides excellent coverage.

I am just wondering why you are recomending the LUXE foundation when you use the traceless? Do you use the LUXE also?

FYI: I am also 45. I broke out for the first time with acne rosacea two years ago after 20 years of pretty good skin. It has never gone away. I started the regimen a couple of days ago. feeling hopeful after spending tons on dermatologists, finacea, metrogel, noritate, rosac wash, doxycycline, face doctor, face surgeon, prometherin, diflucan... used as directed by dermatologists without any relief. So, lets see what happens.

i feel like cliniques line is very good - also loreal for mature skin (thats what my mom uses) but everyone has different skin, that reacts to different things.
